Sawyer's End of the Year Program

Sawyer switched schools back in January since her previous schools was downtown where I was working, and that was no longer an option when I started staying home.  I was obviously apprehensive about starting her at a new school, especially one where I didn't know anyone and had just opened.  I chose this school because she had previously been in a Spanish immersion class and that was something we wanted her to continue to be exposed to.  We couldn't be happier.  She is speaking so much more Spanish and understands so well.  Just the other day she told me that she loved her teachers so much.  I think we made the right decision!

They had their end of the year program a couple weeks ago.  I had no idea what to expect - especially when the costume came home in her backpack and we tried it on at home.  What in the world?!?

Sawyer hadn't said anything about it what so ever.  When I told her she was going to be in a show for school her response was always "I want to watch a show!"  A.k.a. turn on Disney Junior and watch Sophia the First.

As soon as she got her costume on on the night of the show, she was in full on performer mode!

My parents and Barry's mom came to the performance.  I was sure she would be totally shy when she saw them, but no.  She was so excited.

The show started with all the kids parading down the aisle toward the stage, she was strutting her stuff!  Since Sawyer is in the youngest class, they went first.  They sang and danced to two songs and she did so good!  It was obvious that they had been practicing for a quite a while and she had all the moves down.  At one point during the second song she spun so hard she fell down then walked right to the middle of the stage in front of the other kids and gave herself a round of applause.  Proud moment.

We were so proud of our little performer!  And super impressed with the teachers and school and all the work that went in the program.

And, Ty did a great job supporting his big sister!
